One wrote: “Ok apparently #TheMaskedSinger is in Canada but still not here in Maryland they said it will be after the game… but I doubt it. Even Judge Nicole tweeted an apology for this and for any spoilers. Man is that a clusterf*@#!!!” Another wrote, “MLB should postpone the game and keep The Masked Singer shown! Not broadcast live!” Additionally, one fan fumed, “It makes me hate baseball now more”.
Shortly after FOX realized angry fans were taking over Twitter, FOX apologized. They wrote: “Whoa whoa #TheMaskedSinger fam… SO sorry about the delay! The episode is still airing in Canada, so please watch out for spoilers. We’ll let you know when you can watch the episode ASAP.” They also posted, claiming that the episode will air after the baseball game ends. They wrote, “WEDNES-YAY continues after the game!” Shortly after the end However, after the match, FOX deleted that tweet, leaving fans wondering if the episode will even air or not.
The Masked Singer Season 8 Episode 4 was scheduled to air after the baseball game. However, the same did not happen. Therefore, FOX tweeted a sad message to their fans. The platform wrote, “Please forgive us… Sorry we missed you tonight but see you next week on @FOXTV!”

One fan lashed out tweeting: “YOU KEEP US WAIT. YOU PROMISE IT WOULD TURN ON AFTER THE GAME. HOW YOU COULD LIE US.” Another vented his anger: “What a bunch of shit made us all wait in vain. Why didn’t you say that earlier instead of everyone thinking we’d get the episode tonight?” Additionally, another fan wrote, “Ridiculous. Could have told us hours ago you were canceling tonight’s US episode.” Another fan asked FOX, “Why did you delete the tweet about the show that’s on after the game?”
